The NZK Series of low-profile pneumatic cylinders combine high power characteristics with minimum dimensions, and are low in profile yet rugged. Low-friction operation is achieved by using pistons with a separate guidance band for minimum starting pressures and stable, supported movement. The cylinders are available in double-acting, single-acting normally retracted, and single-acting normally extended configurations, with double- or single-acting designs and standard or longer stroke lengths up to 20 inches.

The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
